Brief Introduction of

Chinese Journal of Computational Mechanics    

<Chinese Journal of Computational Mechanics> is an academic journal jointly sponsored by CATAM (Chinese Association for Theoretical and Applied Mechanics) and Dalian University of Technology in China. Its publication was approved by the State Commission of Science and Technology of China, and is administered by the Ministry of Education of China as well.

This journal was initiated to the public in February, 1982, while the computational mechanics, a novel subject in China experienced a period of rapid development and attracted interest from a large number of researchers, with the initiative taken by a famous scholar, an Academician of Chinese Academy of Science, and one of the sponsors of IACM (International Association of Computational Mechanics), Professor Qian Ling-xi, who was then the chairman of CATAM and was elected the editor-in-chief of the journal.

Professor Gengdong Cheng, who is an Academician of Chinese Academy of Science and a Foreign Academician of Russian Academy of Science, and Chairman of International Society for Structural and Multidisplinary Optimisation, became the Editor-in-Chief in June 2015 when the new Editorial Board was formed.

This journal is the most representative one in the field of Computational Mechanics in China. It not only encourages the development of theory and methodologies in computational mechanics, but also promotes its engineering applications and domestic/international academic exchanges. Most of its readers are engineers, researchers, academics, and postgraduates. Theoretical contributions to and successful applications of computational mechanics are the two main selection criteria of papers of the journal, which may be published in different categories; such as research papers, reviews, notes, program designs, special lectures, conference information and academic discussions, etc.
